It’s time to break out the soldering iron again. A few years ago, I swapped the 490/498s for an SD Jazz and 59/custom hybrid. I think the jazz went into the neck, but I’d have to look. (Senile). The SDs are better, but not quite there yet. Right now, I’m down to either SD SH-55s or Gibson 57 classics. Some folks say they are a wash. Some prefer unpotted SH-55s. Some like the potted 57s. I’m also ditching the current harness (2 x taps and a phase switch) for a regular old 50s rig with .022uF Emerson caps and CTS 550k pots. Hoping it works, and I welcome your thoughts.
